Christmas All Year Long - February

 

 

 


Here is my entry to the Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long blog hop. You can find it each month on the 25th. I am posting three pictures of the card trying to show the color more accurately and the sparkle - some pictures show it better on the snowman and some show it better on the trees and snowflakes so with all three you get the idea.

I love this Magnolia Snowman! He is so adorable. I love his eyes, so expressive and cheerful. I also used an Alota background stamp,(which I purchased both from magnolia-licious) yes it is the same one I used for Tilda and Edwin skating :) It is my only Winter scene LOL! Anyway the designer paper is Stampin' Up! and the card stock is chocolate chip and old olive (SU). I used my water color crayons to color and also used the Tsukineko all purpose ink paint in frost white as snow accents. There is Icicle color Stickles on my cute little snowman and diamond color Stickles on the snowflakes. There is also Diamond Glaze on the bells to make them nice and shiny. The snowflakes are on a border punch by Martha Stewart that I just picked up today.

I hope you like my entry - it was fun to make and I really enjoyed coloring this cute little guy. Oh I just want to squeeze him he is so cute!

Please head on over to the next fabulous card on this blog hop journey! Paper Castles

Your card is so cute. I would not have thought to add the snowman to the skating pond. Great idea.
